I need help. Please decide if the following experience is a success or failure:
Walking down the street in Pittsburgh, I was stopped by a man who asked me to buy him a pizza from the place a half block back the way I’d come. I agreed. However, I was so flustered by the experience, since this was my first time buying food for a stranger who asked me, that I forgot that I probably should have stayed at the pizza place and talked. After paying, I didn’t know what to do, so I left, completely failing to seize any moment that might have been present.
Obviously, this may have been an opportunity from God in response to my searching for ways to minister and serve, and while I may not have completely blown it, no one can say I lived up to potential.
Maybe next time.
Maybe I need to walk places more often.
